Fortuna Sittard are out of the bottom three after a 2-0 victory against 10-man Volendam.

Fortuna Sittard had already sealed their first win of the campaign against Excelsior and they took the lead in the 33rd minute against Volendam. Úmaro Embaló found the net with an excellent strike.

Volendam was then reduced to ten men when VAR intervened and Bilal Ould-Chikh was shown a straight red card for a hard tackle on George Cox. With the extra-man, Fortuna Sittard doubled their lead before the break as Oguzhan Özyakup finished off a nice move by Ivan Pinto.

The home team was comfortable in the second half but there were no more goals. Burak Yilmaz came close but his strike hit the post.

Fortuna Sittard is now 14th while Volendam is 17th.
